Transcript of Hamster Adaptations
Hamsters live in cages, when in captivity, but when in the wild they burrow in the ground and make nests either in extremely cold or extremely hot climates.
Are used to either hot or cold climate so have adaptations in their brains so that they have the smarts to cope with their home.
They have paws to eat, claws to defend themselves, sharp teeth for biting if for chewing or if provoked.
They have claws,
They have fur for warmth,
and They know to sharpen their teeth so that they do not suffocate on their own teeth, because their teeth grow quickly, so they have to gnaw on stuff. Such as tree branches, chews (if in captivity) or small rocks.
Predators (in wild and captivity)
In wild: Snakes, spiders, ants, bears, scorpions, owls, birds of prey, reptiles, and wild cats.
In Captivity: Cats, dogs, other carnivorous pets, snakes, larger hamsters, parrots, and birds
If in captivity: Sunflower seeds, milk, apple slices, lettuce, nuts, hamster food.
If in wild: Nuts, seeds, greens, small bugs [if available]
